Experience On Your Side


San Jose, California is the third largest city in California (behind Los Angeles and San Diego) and the tenth largest city in the entire country. With almost 1 million residents, several professional sports teams, and a prime Bay Area location in the heart of the Silicon Valley, San Jose is as diverse as it is dynamic and one of the truly great cities of America.

Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP has been proudly serving San Jose residents for more than 85 collective years and is recognized as one of the leading plaintiff’s personal injury firms in all of Northern California. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or if someone you love passed away due to a wrongful death, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our skilled San Jose CA personal injury lawyers.

We offer free case evaluations and have gained knowledge in personal injury through 100+ collective years of litigation experience. Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP only practices personal injury law and we routinely handle cases involving everything from auto accidents and wrongful death to dog attacks and products liability. We care about protecting your rights and getting you the compensation you deserve. Please contact us to discuss your case today.

We do not charge you unless we win your case.

A serious accident and injury can happen to anyone at any time and the law treats all accident victims equally, regardless of status or income. At Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP, we are passionate about obtaining justice and compensation for all our clients and thus work on a contingency basis, thereby ensuring every injured person, regardless of status or income, has access to skilled representation.

When you hire our skilled personal injury attorneys, you will not have to pay any up-front costs or retainer and you will not be charged a fee until we win your case. Upon resolution of the case, the attorney’s fee is deducted from the settlement amount-typically 33-40 percent-which means that after an injury, you can focus on healing and being with family and won’t have to worry about finding money for an attorney’s fee. Our firm also provides initial consultations without charge or obligation, giving you free and confidential access to an experienced California personal injury lawyer.

If you have sustained a serious injury, please contact Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP as soon as possible. Even the most deserving personal injury case cannot be heard in court if it is not filed within the applicable state of limitations-as short as six months in California. Our attorneys will also conduct a thorough investigation of your case to uncover all negligent parties and find all potential damages claims. We will aggressively negotiation, mediate, and arbitrate your case and ultimately go to trial to ensure your rights are protected.
